Women drive housing demand and hammer away at renovations

The “2007 Royal LePage Female Buyers Report” was released this morning.   The report which marries findings from a national consumer poll with anecdotal research examines the buying habits of Canadian women.  Among some of the findings, the report found that women are playing an increasingly significant role in the real estate market.  In fact, of single women who are not yet homeowners, 31 percent say they will potentially purchase their next home within three years and 30 percent already own.

With a cheque book firmly in one hand and a hammer confidently in the other single female homebuyers of all ages continue to knock down barriers by purchasing real estate and tackling home repairs. Currently, 30 percent of single, never-before married women own their own home, while 45 percent of divorced or separated women and 64 percent of widowed women are homeowners, according to the Royal LePage Female Buyers Report released today.

I’m always happy to answer your Saskatoon real estate questions.
